I'm looking for a good name for a piece that moves one square as a Wazir and then continues as a Crooked Bishop. I am using this piece in a game where the four basic piece types are two leapers, one color-bound, and one color-switching; and two sliders, one color-bound, and one color-switching. Three of my basic pieces are Bishop, Knight, and Camel. I devised an approximately Rook-valued piece that is always color-switching. I would also be interested in possible alternative pieces that are color-switching and approximately Rook-valued.
